Reaching the side wall in an efficient manner. Learn about side-to-side forehand movement and covering the court in squash with this free video on squash drills.
Okay, covering the court is extremely important in the game of squash. So how do you reduce this whole court down into bite size pieces so you can get to every ball and every part of the court? It, there's a lot of people that are fast, but they're not fast on the court because they don't know how to move. So what I want you to think about here is we are going to be breaking the game down into these little size pieces. So how do I reach the side wall in the most efficient manner? Now I'm five foot nine on a tall day, so how do I get to that side wall and cover everything? Well I have to go like this. Little step, big step, and I can touch the side wall. So you just do a practice like that, little step, big step, side wall. Or I can take a bigger step and a bigger step. It depends on what ball I want to hit. So if I've got a ball that is low and very close to the wall, I might take a half a decent sized step and then a real big step so I can get down low and get that ball. So the drill is, just something to practice is, you go side, side, and you see how fast you can do this. So in a ten or twenty or thirty second intervals, just try to get to the ball like that every time. So it's very, very important to learn how to step to your right. So that's a very, very good drill. You just time yourself and you'll see that your movement to the side wall improves immensely.
